Katie first hunted when she was seven years old and has continued to follow hounds ever since. She was awarded her hunt buttons when she was seventeen years old, the same year she won my first Point-to-Point race. At that time, Katie's father was a Permit Holder and Katie trained all the racehorses for the track. The family ran horses in Point to Points and National Hunt races including races at Aintree and Cheltenham; a very exciting time.
Katie evented and trained horses to Intermediate Level for seven years, along with showing Hacks, Cobs, Hunters, Riding Horses and Arabs at County Level, but with more clients wanting to show horses, her eventers then joined the Working Hunters and as a yard they concentrated on the show scene.
